To disappear, it would do a lot worse.
In the last debate of the Royal Geographical Society of London, the Earthwatch Institute concluded that bees are the most important living being on the planet. However, scientists have also announced: Bees are already threatened with extinction.
According to recent studies, bees worldwide have disappeared up to 90%.
The reasons are different depending on the region, but among the main ones are massive deforestation, lack of safe places for nests, lack of flowers, use of uncontrolled pesticides, soil, among others.
WHY ARE BEES DECLARED AS THE MOST REAL LIFE LIVING ON OUR PLANET?
The Beekeeping Entrepreneurship Center of the Universidad Mayor (CeapiMayor) and the Apiculture Corporation of Chile (Cach), with the support of the Foundation for Agrarian Innovation (FIA), conducted a study which determined that bees are the only living creatures they are. does not carry any type of pathogen, whether it is a fungus, a virus or a bacterium.
The agriculture of the world depends on 70% of these insects. To put it more clearly, we could say that 70 of the 100 foods are used for bees.
In addition, pollination of bees allows plants to reproduce, fed by millions of animals. Without them, the wildlife would soon disappear.
Honey produced by bees not only serves as food, but also offers many benefits for our health and our skin.
According to a quote attributed to Albert Einstein, if the bees disappear, humans would have 4 years to live.
WHAT ARE THE REASONS AND ASSUMPTIONS ASSIGNED TO THE EARLY DISAPPEARANCE OF BEES?
The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology offers a theory that blames the waves produced by mobile telephony. They explain that these waves emitted during calls are able to disorient bees, making them lose their sense of direction and thus putting their lives in danger.
The researcher and biologist Daniel Favre, in collaboration with other researchers, made 83 experiments that show that the bees in the presence of these waves produce a noise ten times higher than normal, a behavior that was observed to make known to other bees. danger and it is important to leave the hive.
Without a doubt, the main reason for its disappearance is attributed to the constant fumigation of crops. This is happening in Colombia: in the last three years, 34% of bees containing agro toxins have died of intoxication.
ARE THERE SOLUTIONS TO THE PROBLEM?
There are solutions, the problem is that it is very difficult to implement because the production and farming practices are well established.
However, three solutions are proposed in the hope of being able to solve them quickly:
Prohibit, not reduce, the use of toxic pesticides.
Promote totally natural agricultural alternatives.
Conduct ongoing research and monitoring on the health, welfare and conservation of bees.
This is an example of the problem faced by bees and the urgency of changing our resource management, said Luciano Grisales, representative at the Colombian Chamber of Commerce.
It is vitally important to establish the strategic nature of the protection and repopulation of bees and other pollinators, as not doing so in 10 years would not be counted for bees in Colombia. This would lead to a food disaster and a health crisis in the country. – Luciano expressed at the sustainable week.
